What a great day!!






Yesterday was one of my favourite days ever! Les and I got to sleep in a bit, then I made french toast cups with berries for breakfast...then I got to go to a scrapbooking class...then Les took me out for dinner...then we lingered at the bookstore...then a trip to Starbucks...and then we went to the observatory. (Romantic, no?!!) Well, we did decide that the moon, stars and planets are all a little more romantic with the naked eye than through a telescope, so then we went for a drive and enjoyed them that way! (...sigh!)

I have the best husband! (Have I told you that lately?) He builds me up and encourages me to do things that nurture my soul, and he was the driving force behind me signing up for the class I did yesterday. It was a glimmer mist class - and I *loved* it. I made this vintage album and box. I don't think the pictures do it justice, but what fun to sit and create for 5 hours straight. That's right, straight - I didn't even get up for breaks I was so into it! Anyone want to hire me to craft all day? What a dream job that would be!! Blogger wouldn't let me post all the pictures, so I might post a few more another day, but I did post the page the the quote on creativity on purpose. It goes...

"Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep."

Don't you just love that?! If you know me, then you know that I'm really hard on myself about mistakes, so this quote hit me so fresh...to allow myself to make mistakes is part of the creative process maybe...maybe that's why God didn't just make us all perfect?! Anyway, it's got me thinking...

Oh and one more great thing happened yesterday - at the end of my class I was given a membership to Just Scrap It! - a friend had snuck in and bought it for me while I was 'creating' as a late bday gift!! Does it get any better than that?!! It was a great day!

WOW sounds like you had an amazing day!! This book and box are amazing also, you did a fabulous job and I can so relate to the perfection thing. I don't think God created anyone perfect!! You're hubby sounds like he is amazing too!!

This book is amazing! I love mini albums but never sit down and actually create them. This is just fabulous all around.

It sounds like you had a fantastic day.
